I have helped over 200 students with their exams; of these, more than one-third made successful applications to Ivy League schools or major business schools.

I have been a professional tutor since 2006.
Across all of the different subjects I teach, I always notice the same thing: the main difficulty that learners encounter is getting overwhelmed by what they're trying to learn. It could be that there seems to be simply too much material to cover; it could be that the concepts seem too difficult; it could be that the whole thing causes anxiety for some completely different reason which is apparently unrelated to the 'academic' side of things.

Where possible I use topical examples and have a wealth of knowledge and experience and relevant anecdotes which br...

I began tutoring in autumn 2015, starting with GCSE English in my local area. I continued with some online work during my Master’s degree, and since then have made tutoring my main career. I have several students with whom I run regular weekly sessions, and others with whom I meet as work demands, especially around coursework deadlines and exam season. Tutoring provides me the opportunity to continue to engage with the subjects I spent years of my life studying – it’s a learning opportunity as m...
